Each organization has its own way of operating, and the right communications networks can greatly enhance worker safety and efficiency. But with so many wireless communications bearers out there, how do you choose the one or the right mix for your organization? In this lesson of the Tait Radio Academy we explore this question.
Mining communications systems are usually geographically constrained around individual mines. However, the mine of the future demands integrated company-wide communications across the entire reach of its operations – not just from pit to port, but across multiple field sites, and city-based corporate offices. How can this be achieved? In this lesson from the Tait Radio Academy, we explore this question.
Whether you move minerals, passengers, or patients, success means getting your payload to where it needs to be, in a safe and timely manner. Whatever hurdles stand in your way, reliable voice and data communications can help ensure the journey is secure and efficient. Bruce Magee, General Manager for Services at Tait offers some insight.

As organizations mature in security adherence and requirements, there is a gradual shift from focus on security through technology to securing the entire ecosystem. The principle behind this is the idea that ‘the weakest link in the chain determines the strength of the entire chain’. Ashish Dutta, Chief Security Officer at Tait Communications, discusses what goes into delivering robust Information Security solutions to mission critical organizations.
In an increasingly digital world, critical communications is no longer just about LMR voice – the modern workforce demands ever more data to use location services and applications that increase worker safety and productivity. Converged voice and data solutions meet these needs by taking advantage of both broadband and narrowband technology.
Many organizations, both public and private, have harnessed the power of cloud technologies, but most Public Safety organizations are yet to embrace them, due to concerns over security, control and reliability. However, as advances in technology are presenting Public Safety agencies with unprecedented amounts of data, cloud technology should no longer be overlooked.
Instant Push-To-Talk communications are a must-have in critical industries. Already, Push-To-Talk-over-Cellular (PTToC) applications are being used to replace traditional radio communications in non-mission-critical scenarios. However, while cellular networks certainly have the data rates and speed to provide instant communications, is PTToC really mission-critical? In this lesson from the Tait Radio Academy, we explore that question.
Public Safety technology is a complex and ever-changing ecosystem. Cloud-based infrastructure and applications are delivering innovation but still aren’t trusted as much as the more familiar and proven on-premises systems. However, cloud resources available today have overcome many concerns over reliability and security so you don’t have to miss out on new capabilities, improved performance and lower cost solutions.
LTE offers a combination of features unmatched by any other wireless technology: broadband data, high speed, low latency, and exceptional spectral efficiency. Could it be the mission critical technology of the future, or is there still a long way to go? In this lesson from the Tait Radio Academy, we take a look at the pros and cons of LTE.
